Highly unlikely - it's a fault in the mainboard, the image processor is failing, probably because it's overheating and failing. Open the back of the tv , clean it thoroughly and check the power source for damage.

First off what is the make and model of the tv and how long have you owned it? Is there any audio? Do any lights come on in the front when you turn it on? I will need more information to try and narrow it down. Most likely though there will not be a "quick fix" unfortunately.
Thank you,
Lee

42 inch flat screen shows black screen with sound only no picture


That sounds like the backlight system or its powersupply has failed. If you can see an ghost like image when close and at an angle near the dge (depends on the light) then this confirms the backlight being the problem.

Repair cost should be about $100. You should be able to get this fixed under warrenty if you have any. If not get repair estimates before doing anything. It should be worth fixing but it never hurts to know if it is getting close to what a new replacment tv is worth.

42 Inch Samsung Flatscreen; 1.5 years old. Won't


Hi,

First test the wall outlet, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet see if it works. If the outlet works then read the following below. If the wall outlet doesn't work then plug the TV into another outlet.

If its not the wall outlet:

Unfortunately the power supply has a problem sustaining DC output. This can be caused from several fault scenarios. Get someone who is technically savvy and I will show them via e-mail what to test to fix this problem for you. Or you can take it to your local repair center.

42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture


Most likely what happened is one of the capacitors went bad. When a capacitors goes bad it produces a popping sound. This could be an easy and cheap fix if you find the bad capacitor or capacitors. The bad capacitor will have a bulging top most likely on the power board but could be anywhere.
